This is a multi-purpose residential facility that will be constructed at the Oakes Field Campus through a public-private sector partnership between University of The Bahamas and Providence Advisors Limited. The structure will comprise a 1000-bed facility, a cafeteria, fitness facilities, swimming pool, study rooms, additional classrooms, retail spaces, a ball room and parking deck. Envisioned as a living-learning facility, this will transition UB from a commuter institution to a residential one in which students learn both inside and outside of the classroom. This integrated educational environment will allow for greater academic activity in a living and learning community setting which takes into account the intellectual and developmental needs of students. It will provide greater opportunities for students to learn from each other, form support systems and develop their full potential. Also, the facility will aid the robust recruitment of local and international students and faculty. Construction is to begin in 2017.
